I absolutely appreciate the offer!! I found a donor, but I'll let you know if we end up needing more assistance! This site is amazing. The generosity has been incredible.

Hi-
I live in Saline and am nursing a 2 month old. He was 6 weeks premature, but my milk production is going strong. I have roughly 32 oz you can have if you still need some. A lot of it hasn't been frozen yet, but some has been frozen since November. If things continue the way they have been, I'll probably be able to supplement you weekly. I'm just not sure how his needs might change and how I might keep up, but for the last several days, I've been pumping around 4-5 oz each day in excess. I'm extremely careful about what I eat and who I come in contact with because I'm trying to keep him sheltered throughout cold/flu season. No alcohol, drugs, or caffeine (except chocolate once in a while) and I usually eat mostly organic foods. If you are still in need, let me know and I'd be happy to help you out. Wink

Ann Arbor grad student needs supplement

Post by ananda01 on Thu Nov 18, 2010 8:47 am

I am a grad student and working as a TA, with a 3.5 month little one. I can only pump 3 oz per side per session so we're running at a deficit, now that she is eating more, we're running out of my small freezer supply quickly! I want to keep up exclusive bm until 6 months at least! Is there anyone with a freezer stash to donate, or anyone nearby from whom we could receive a weekly supplement for a short time? I estimate we're at about a 20 oz deficit per week right now. I drink a cup of coffee each day, so we don't mind a light coffee drinker. Of course, we will fund expenses in the normal way this site suggests.
